Whistleblower

The Chairman of the Committee on Recovery of Missing Government Movable Property in Imo State, Jasper Ndubuaku, has disclosed that officials of the administration of former Governor Rochas Okorocha left with the state government’s property worth N50bn.

The state governor, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, set up the committee shortly after he was sworn in.

Addressing journalists in Owerri, the state capital, Ndubuaku said his committee had resolved to apply the Federal Government’s whistleblower policy to encourage members of the public with useful information on the missing government property to make such available to the committee.

According to him, among government vehicles already recovered are 279 Prado SUVs, 27 pay-loaders and 27 lorries.

He alleged that generators, including those used by former commissioners, were also looted.

Ndubuaku, a former member of the state House of Assembly, appealed to those still in possession of government vehicles to return them to his committee without further delay.
